Holy Spirit Religious Education assists parents in fulfilling their duty and role as the Domestic Church. Our goal is to work with parents to provide an environment that fosters a relationship with the Trinity through prayer, scripture, and Church Tradition. Children will be exposed to scripture, doctrine, various prayer opportunities, and small group discussion and activities to help them relate their faith to their daily life. It is important that the parents take an active role in witnessing their own faith to their children through active participation in the sacraments and their own continued faith development.
